The Asset 18 Jul 2022

Netherlands-based asset manager NN Investment Partners (NN IP) has appointed Neil Mascarenhas and Ho Qian Yi to its responsible investing (RI) team of Asian experts that focus on developing products for environmental, social and governance (ESG)-integrated solutions.

Mascarenhas has been appointed as the Asia lead for the company’s RI and innovation platform, a role in which he will offer clients support, drive thought leadership, further enhance the firm’s ESG integration, and maintain oversight of relevant trends and thematic topics. He has over 15 years of experience in investments in Hong Kong and India, and across the Asean region.

Ho Qian Yi has been appointed ESG analyst, with responsibility for the ongoing ESG integration efforts within the Asian credit and emerging market debt strategies. Furthermore, she will conduct ESG research analysis and support the investment teams in conducting dialogue with sustainability-linked and green bond issuers on ESG topics. Ho has held various environmental and sustainability-related positions providing sustainability consultation and conducting research in the fields of biology, environment and biodiversity since 2015. 

These appointments come, the company points out, at a time when sustainability topics are increasingly taking centre stage in discussions with investee companies and sovereigns in the region. At the same time, client demand to invest in sustainable solutions is growing in Asia.

Gopi Mirchandani, CEO and head of client group, Asia, ex Japan, NN IP Singapore, says: “With their knowledge and expertise of sustainability topics within the region, we can accelerate our sustainable investing efforts and further enhance our ESG and sustainable product offerings for our clients.”
